|MELBOURNE Ka'imi Fairbairn Jersey , Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese-built replica of ancient Rome's Coliseum could be installed as a permanent tourist attraction in Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne's city councilors are debating a plan to drop the already-built wooden structure, which measures 18 meters wide by 35 meters long, in the bayside suburb of Docklands.
The structure, already dubbed the "Docklands Coliseum," would be placed under a large glass dome and accommodate 350 people fewer than the 50,000 to 80 Kendall Langford Jersey ,000 spectators estimated to have crammed into the original amphitheater in Rome 2000 years ago to witness gladiatorial contests as well as a restaurant.
Connie Paglianiti, the event organizer who funded the mass replica out of her own pocket, believes it could become a major tourist pull for the city.
"It's all here in Melbourne - waiting to come to life," Paglianiti told Fairfax Media on Wednesday.
"The whole idea is to make it a tourist destination. You can have weddings, you can have fashion shows, you can have cinema.
"It's quite clean looking, it doesn't look old."
The four-meter high Coliseum made from medium density fiberboard also features a model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa Lamarr Houston Jersey , another iconic piece of Italian infrastructure.
The two recreations were manufactured in China for an exhibit showcasing Italian culture at an import fair in 2013.
"People were taking photos left, right and center," Paglianiti said.
"We were the busiest pavilion. There was music and dancing and singing and food the Chinese loved that."
Paglianiti had the model shipped to Australia and despite receiving offers to take the structure to other Australian cities believes Melbourne's Docklands area is the ideal place to set up shop.
"It'd be great to have the water view, the city skyline in the background, and this thing in the middle," she said.

LOS ANGELES, June 24 (Xinhua) -- For anyone who thought women directors weren't ready for the "Big Chair" on studio blockbusters Jeremy Lane Jersey , think again. They're giving as good as they get.
Patty Jenkins' 570-million-U.S.-dollar global box office success with "Wonder Woman" has set those reservations to rest, surpassing the previous record for a female director, Sam Taylor-Johnson's "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Jenkins' more personal, relationship-driven take on the superhero ethos is not just a weekend wonder. It's generating the kind of sustained global reaction that has Hollywood sitting up and taking notice.
Once relegated to directing only chick flicks, smart, talented female directors are stepping up to the plate on bigger budget action films, thrillers Benardrick McKinney Jersey , war and sports movies, and now superhero pics -- normally reserved for male directors -- and hitting them out of the park.
This is not a new phenomenon. Jenkins' latest effort may have demolished female stereotypes for superheroes and director genders alike, but she is not alone. Other female directors have been paving the way by challenging the glass ceiling and breaking into the coveted "100 million U.S. dollar Club" for decades.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson ("Kung Fu Panda 2"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight"), Vicky Jensen ("Shrek"), Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Amy Heckerling ("Look Who's Talking") Kevin Johnson Jersey , Mimi Leder ("Deep Impact"), and Betty Thomas ("Alvin and the Chipmunks") are just a few of the heavy-hitting female directors who have easily topped 100 million dollars in receipts on their big budget releases.
Male directors have no monopoly on the talent and confidence it takes to helm a big budget movie that can enchant the public and fill studio coffers. IndieWire reported that statistics show female directors who are given big budget films perform as well as their male counterparts.
As a director and writer, Gina Prince-Bythewood wants to set the record straight: "There is a narrative that women do not have the desire to make tent-pole films, and worse, that we can't. Both are false. A good director is a good director. And the truth is, women can bring a fresh aesthetic."
But women in the film industry still have a long way to go to reach parity.
While male directors like James Cameron can routinely jump from a low budget 6 million dollar movie to a 44 million dollar "Rambo" sequel, or Nick Martin Jersey , a young George Lucas can step from a 1 million dollar "American Graffiti" right into his first "Star Wars" movie, equally-talented female directors often wait years for a similar breaks and are forced to do more lower budget movies along the way to earn their stripes.
More women in the top slots leads to a more diverse workforce and more opportunities for women all down the line, reports the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University.
The study has been endorsed by Hollywood A-lister, Jessica Chastain, who sent ripples through the Cannes Film Festival this past month, by extolling the virtues of more three-dimensional female characters.
"I hope that when we include more female storytellers, we will have more of the women I recognize in my day-to-day life Will Fuller V Jersey ," she said. "Ones that are proactive, who have agency, who don't just react to the men around them. They have their own point of view."
As globalization of the film industry and online viewing proliferates, it is essential for the film industry to grasp that there are positive financial, artistic and social upsides to hiring women in top positions across the industry.
The talent, scope and unique perspectives of female directors enable them to create compelling, universal stories that appeal across the entire audience spectrum. And stars love them.
"Wonder Women" star Julien Davenport Jersey , Gal Gadot enthused, "I was so lucky that Patty was the one to direct this movie. She is such a brilliant, talented person, and to be able to work with someone who is so funny and loving and warm was amazing."
